    Default Slc Jewel Box

    It seems the less you pay attention the more blooms you get. I was surprised to see this one with many blooms in a back corner of my greenhouse. Plant looks a bit rough but this an example of the bloom. Name:  Slc Jewel Box - 1.jpg

    Not a typical Jewel Box at all ! I think I prefer this form, more elegant , to my mind. Of cpourse the whole thing about Jewel Box is the "desert" colours, well seen here.

    Jewel Box always reminds me of the catalogs I was constantly looking through nearly 45 years ago, dreaming of my first orchids.

    I can see why this one sure would grab your attention and bite you with the orchid bug. The colors really are beautiful!
